Writers for Deadpool?

Chalk this one up strictly as rumor (for now), but CHUD has gotten word that ZOMIBELAND scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick may be landing the job of filling the Merc with a Mouth's mouth with words.

"While nothing is official just yet, it looks like Fox could be hiring Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers of Zombieland, to script the adventures of the Merc With A Mouth. I did my due diligence and asked around but couldn't get a solid confirmation, so regard this one as a strong rumor... But if it's more than a rumor - and my source tells me there could be a trade break announcing this within days - it's actually a very good sign for Deadpool."

And indeed it is a very good sign as it this could be a strong, positive indication of where Fox wants to go with the character. Most of the pieces already seem to be in place, so now it's just a wait and see as movement on this project continues.
Extra Tidbit: In honor of co-creator Rob Liefeld, will Deadpool's costume have feet or not?
